India can draw from good memories at the Brisbane Cricket Ground as MS Dhoni's side gets ready to bring down Australia on Sunday. The men in blue have won both their previous matches played here.

With just a point between the two sides in the ongoing series, the tournament has turned into an interesting contest. A look at the last match at Woolloongabba between India and Australia though, reflects something on contrasting hues. India won the 2008 match by 9 wickets as Praveen Kumar wrecked havoc with his spell of 4/46. He was named man of the match.

Rewind the clock by another 4 years and statistical books laud a certain VVS Laxman who struck a handsome 103* to carve his team a slender 19-run victory. In fact, Australia won an ODI against India at this ground 20 years back when Dean Jones was still letting his bat do the talking. Jones had 90 next to his name from that match as the hosts won by a run.

Returning to the present series, the three participating teams have put forth serious claims for the trophy and with Sri Lanka sitting last with seven points, both teams playing on Sunday would be hungry to safeguard their position and win the seventh ODI of the series.
